Beyoncé – Broken Hearted Girl lyrics

You're everything I thought you never were
Ain't nothing like a thought could have been
Still, you live inside of me
So tell me how is that

You're the only one I wish I could forget
The only one I love to not forgive
And though you break my heart
You're the only one

And though there are times when I hate you
'Cause I can't erase
The times that you hurt me
And put tears on my face
And even now while I hate you
It pains me to say
I know I'll be there
At the end of the day

I don't wanna be without you babe
I don't want a broken heart
Don't wanna take a breath without you babe
I don't wanna play that part
I know that I love you
But let me just say
I don't wanna love you
In no kind of way, no no
I don't want a broken heart
I don't wanna play the broken-hearted girl
No, no, no broken-hearted girl

Something that I feel I need to say
But untill now I've always been afraid
That you would never come around
And still I wanna put this out

You say you got the most respect for me but
Sometimes I feel you're not deserved of me
And still you're in my heart
But you're the only one

And yes, there are times when I hate you
But I don't complain
'Cause I've been afraid that
You would walk away

Oh but now I don't hate you
I'm happy to say
That I will be there
At the end of the day

I don't wanna be without you babe
I don't want a broken heart
Don't wanna take a breath without you babe
I don't wanna play that part
I know that I love you
But let me just say
I don't wanna love you
In no kind of way, no no
I don't want a broken heart
I don't wanna play the broken-hearted girl
No, no, no broken-hearted girl

Now I met a place I thought I'd never be, oh
I'm living in a world whereas all about you and me, yeah
And I won't be afraid, my broken heart as free
To spread my wings and fly away, away with you

I don't wanna be without my baby
I don't want a broken heart
Don't wanna take a breath without my babe
Don't wanna take a breath without my babe

    I think that she does not wanna play the prt of getting hurt bi A boi that she loves and she jus telling him how she feels and he should not runn ova her like that and if he does that means that they are done. And she wanna B with him 4EVA but if he act ^ it is dun?!?!?!?!?

    I think that in any of our lives we must make sure we are doing what is best for the relationship! A relationship take 2 people, and though we may do things that each other don't like! Everyone is who they are there is not a person in the world that is proceved diffently! So to say that he was what I thought he would never be, make sure that it isn't you!

    This song means a lot to me as I have been going through a rough patch with my boyfriend and this song just changed the way things are. Once I played it to my boy he understood me more. Beyonce has got to be my idol as all of her songs mean something to me. I started of as someone who didn't have a clue on what she wanted in life but now it has come to the point where I know I wanna be with my lad and I love him with all of my heart and that cause og this song.

    Ok so my cousin made me listen to this song this mornig, and is actually preety good lol well how I understood it, its talking about a girl who really loves this guy and doesn't want to accept the fact that hes hurting her a lot yet she doesn't want to be that girl that evryone knows she is broken hearted, and that's why she is still with him bc she still loves him, maybe she also says she hates him bc she gave him her heart and yet he treated her wrong? Idk.

    D ko xa magets, pero nfifeel ko xa, ang saklap. Pero ganon tlaga, minsan tlaga, kahit nasasaktan kna sa taong mahal mo, You still choose to hold on kasi, bka in one way or another, you woke up realizing that he deserves to be loved by some1 lyk you. Hopeful that he'll love you the way you love him.
    Minsan, kahit umaapaw na ang sakit, kulang ung umiyak ka lang, patawarin mo nlng, gnon din nman, in the long run, mahal mo prin nman. =(
    sad, painful, yet true. =(

    My take on it is that she loves him, no matter what. She can't help it and she doesn't want to but that doesn't make it any easier. But she's getting stronger, learning to stick up for herself & realising that she's worth so much more. But it's still difficult for her. Someone you just can't help how you feel. No matter what is said or done. Your feelings are your feelings, no matter why they're there.
